Vienna Department of Recreation and Vienna Theatre Company present “Blithe Spirit” by Noel Coward, Director: Rosemary Hartman, Producer: Jessie Roberts. Noel Coward's famous 1941 classic comedy, ”Blithe Spirit,” centers around socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites Madame Arcati, the local spiritualist and medium, to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he becomes haunted by the ghost of outspoken first wife, Elvira. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost. Worldly and unworldly personalities clash in a battle to see which “blithe spirit” wins!
